On the way to the gallows
I filled up the tank today for $17. :thumb:
I'll go you one better. 1969 (when I started driving) thru early 1970's, Longview, TX, intersection 1845 and Estes Prkw, three self service gas stations in a constant mini gas war. I frequently got Premium 100 octane gas $0.10 9/[email protected] Never more than [email protected] till the gas shortage of 1973.
Back in 1973 Sunoco 260 was 36¢ a gallon and we thought that was high... the least I ever paid was 29¢ a gallon.
.36 cents per gallon in '73 adjusted for inflation for 2020 dollars = $2.18 per gallon.Back in 1973 Sunoco 260 was 36¢ a gallon and we thought that was high... the least I ever paid was 29¢ a gallon.
Filled up last night at $2.45 per... ran me $36.50 for close to 16 gallons.
Gas was cheap but how many lawns did we have to mow to fill up the tank? I had a motorcycle that I could fill for 50 cents but it still took at least two lawns to get the funds.
Depends on which direction the Congress runs. I like gridlock. And he said we never saw that kind of price during the Obama Administration. We did. That's all. I made no other commentary.A-Zs comment was right on, you on the other hand aren't satisfied unless you stir ****. You will be happy if a dem gets elected won't you?
When I lived in Traverse City we paid $.28 a gallon when you southern folk in Detroit paid $.09WOODWARD AVENUE north of Detroit.. 60s...$19CENTS a gallon.
for your DEEEEtroit muscle car.
Yeah... life was good...
